Law and Order SVU: Disrobed
Detectives Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler (Christopher Meloni) investigate the unusual circumstances behind the shooting murder of the admired judge with a reputation of protecting abused women and putting away sex offenders, but they soon learn the victim took sordid advantage of the criminal justice system. Meanwhile, Cassidy (Dean Winters) has his own secret to hide, but has to endure Detective Munch's (Richard Belzer) derisive comments about his professional ability to cope with parts of his job in the special victims unit.

Which is bad enough, Captain, but it just gets worse. They left her there, uh, by herself, in the cold, wrapped up in a beach towel. It was after dark, you know, and she couldn't walk. She just sat there in what was left of her... clothes, and this guy comes along and asks her if she needs some help, and she says, "Yes, please... thank you." And this guy... this, uh... this Good Samaritan, he, uh... he...
This was Dean Winters' last episode. His character, Det. Brian Cassidy, transferred to Narcotics as a result of his inability to deal with the nature of the crimes that SVU Unit investigated.
